Zambian Vice President, Guy Scott today sought India’s co-operation for the manufacturing of zinc and other non-ferrous metals, during his visit to the facilities of Hindustan Zinc in Rajasthan.

“During his interaction with the senior management of Hindustan Zinc, the Vice President expressed his happiness towards visiting world’s largest integrated zinc producer,” Hindustan Zinc, in which metal major Vedanta has majority stake, said in a statement.

The delegation discussed various areas including exchange of technology, human resource, investment opportunities and business excellence, among others.

Scott, who is on a two-day visit, also stressed on the need for sending an expert team to India for understanding the various Indian operations and compare with Zambian Operations.

Hindustan Zinc is the world’s largest integrated zinc producer and also the largest lead and silver producer in India.

Scott is leading a high-power delegation, including trade minister Emmanuel Chenda and transport minister Christopher Yaluma, among others.
